When you live and farm in Napa Valley, you gain a respect for forces that are more powerful than you.
The weather and climate, geology and soils, slope and aspect, the way the sun traverses a vineyard through the course of a day, a season, a year. All of these influences comprise what we know as terroir. Working with the Eisele Vineyard for over twenty years showed us the power of terroir. We are deeply grateful for these lessons in how a vineyard can express itself through its wines.
With Accendo, we apply this experience to our own vineyards in Oakville and St. Helena, and to properties throughout Napa Valley which we have long held in high esteem. We work with friends and growers who share our viticultural philosophy and passion, who care as much about the vitality of the land as the quality of the grapes they grow. And whose interest, like ours, is in producing wines expressive of terroir.
The diversity and intricacy of Napa Valley continue to amaze us, as does the unparalleled quality of its wines. With Accendo, our aim is to capture that diversity, that intriguing, layered complexity that represents this valley and its terroirs at their very finest.
